Some other Aviation History organisations and friends.

Based out of Hood Aerodrome in Masterton, Wairarapa Flying Tigers is a society that was established by Tom WIlliams back in 1974 and was originally known as New Zealand Sport and Vintage Aviation Society (SVAS).

Recently renamed Wairarapa Flying Tigers, our mission is to preserve, teach and promote New Zealand’s aviation history and aircraft through:

The acquisition and restoration of vintage, veteran or otherwise desirable aircraft for historical purposes and the active operation, static display, and maintenance to operational standards of these aircraft and others constructed in the classical tradition.
